Category 3 Damage to Finished Basement

This residence located in Dumont, NJ underwent an extensive amount of water damage to their finished basement. You can see in the first photo just how saturated the dry wall and insulation is that it is cut and flopped over. Being that the source of water was from the sewer drain pipe the contaminated water was a category 3 meaning that all affected areas needed to be removed. By the end of all the removals this once finished basement looked more like an unfinished basement unfortunately. What was left of the flooring was only the concrete flooring part of the foundation.
